Batsmen may be constantly propelling their teams to high scores everyday but <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/sri-lanka/">Sri Lanka</a> veteran pacer <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/lasith-malinga/news/">Lasith Malinga</a> believes that the bowlers will be the "game changers" in the upcoming <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/icc-cricket-world-cup-2019-200898/">World Cup</a> despite the flowing runs. <p></p> <p></p>"Cricket is going towards the batsmen but bowlers can change the game, they get the wickets and that wins a match," Malinga was quoted as saying by ICC Media after Sri Lanka's five-wicket defeat to Australia in their second warm-up game at Southampton on Monday night. <p></p> <p></p>"Whoever has the skilful bowlers, in any condition on any pitch, will have the advantage in the team. Bowlers need to have a skill, then know how to analyse a game. They need to improve as quickly as they can and get confidence from their performances," he added. <p></p> <p></p>The 35-year-old was a vital cog in the IPL franchise <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/mumbai-indians">Mumbai Indians</a> bowling unit this year, claiming 16 wickets to help his side win a record fourth title in the T20 cash-rich league. <p></p> <p></p>"In the last couple of years, I have worked on the variations and it boosts confidence, but situation analysis is very important," Malinga said. <p></p> <p></p>His performance against Chennai Super Kings in the the final, where he backed himself to bowl a slower delivery in the final ball and defend two runs, has underlined Malinga's status as one of the world's best death bowlers. <p></p> <p></p>"The team expects and I expect myself to know how to do this, if I want to be a match-winner I need to take wickets and if I feel that's a slower ball, I go for it. I have good confidence to bowl it." <p></p> <p></p>After the warm-up match, everyone was surprised to see Malinga sharing tips with the Australian allrounder Marcus Stoinis on how to deliver a slower ball. "Variations is very important in the short-format game. During IPL also he (Stoinis) had wanted to know how I bowl (it)," Malinga revealed. <p></p> <p></p>"I wanted to give him tips that's how cricket moves forward. Whoever wants to know, I will help them. I'll share tricks on how to bowl slow balls, which situation you will use it, why you want to use the slow one," he said.
